Owner & Operator

Spanish Joaquin Gomez, born in Cadiz and slave trader, buys in 1810 the house that made mansion in 1836 and it’s at the moment The Hotel Florida.

This property passes at the hands of the children of Don Joaquin Gomez, by title of made a will inheritance, when he died in 1860.

Illustrious Mr. J. Eugenio Moré (Count of Casa Moré) acquires the entirety of this mansion in 1880.

The first owner of this elegant mansion once it transformed into Hotel Florida it was Mr. Juan E. Pino and managed by José Dobaño.

This hotel was restored and now it is operated, from 1994, for the office of the historian of the Havana city, so all its benefit is reinvested in the restoration of the historical center of the city.

Welcome to my site dedicated to the Hotel Florida in Old Havana. I am "poco a poco" researching and updating it with the aim to provide as complete as possible record of the hotel's ancient and recent history; bearing in mind that the goings-on today may one day be of historical interest.

My site is NOT the official website of the current hotel operator, and is by no means endorsed by them; but I am grateful for their help with the research.

You can make from this site room reservations through the Bizloco eTravel System operated by Cubaism Ltd.

Best wishes for 2008
